Right after Apple announced new Game Center and its November release, Firemint sent us an email to let you know that it will seamlessly incorporate Apple Game Center features into its hit games Flight Control and Real Racing via the Cloudcell platform. The Game Center features for these games will be available on the supported devices (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation), and will also be mirrored on Cloudcell to offer the same features to the non-supported devices. The Game Center features should be introduced right after Game Center is released, updates will of course be free.
Firemint will seamlessly incorporate Apple Game Center features into its hit games Flight Control and Real Racing via its Cloudcell platform. The features will be available on supported devices (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation), but will also be mirrored on Cloudcell whenever possible to offer similar functionality on older devices. Features such as achievements and leaderboards will be available in the game itself, on the Cloudcell web site or via Game Center. We hope Game Center features will be available in our games (as free updates) as soon as Game Center is released.
